The fast food joint is hoping to trial the veggie options this year, with plans make them a permanent fixture on menus across United Kingdom stores in 2019, reports Foodbeast.

Orlando-based global restaurant consultant Aaron Allen predicts large restaurant companies increasingly unveil more vegetarian options, like KFC's.
